What will insurance do for me?

Answer: 

Health insurance has systems in place to improve access to care and process the billing for the services. These systems include:

  • Paying the provider directly instead of reimbursing you after you've paid the bill yourself.
  • Ensuring that you receive the benefit of the insurance company's discounted pricing arrangements with the health care providers.
  • Disease management programs that may help you manage a chronic, or long-lasting condition.
  • Medical case management to assist with your medical treatment during and after a hospital stay.
